KLM UK confirms cutbacks

KLM UK has announced plans to axe a total of six domestic and international routes that do not feed directly into KLM’s Amsterdam Schiphol hub, as exclusively reported in Travel Weekly (August 9).

Aberdeen-Stansted will be dropped on September 12, followed by Aberdeen-Stavanger, Jersey-Stansted, Stansted-Rome and Manchester-London City on October 30. Southampton-Jersey services are due to end on March 25 2000.

The carrier is also cutting back Stansted-Brussels flights from four to three times a day, and its Stansted-Edinburgh frequency from seven to four times a day.

Instead, KLM UKis increasing its overall capacity on routes to Amsterdam, its international hub, by 12%. This figure also incorporates a 33% boost in capacity to Amsterdam from Scottish airports.

Meanwhile, the company plans to start flying three times a day from Stansted to Berlin from October 31.
